Report: Bengals’ Orson Charles Arrested For Endangerment

According to the¬†Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals fullback Orson Charles was arrested for endangerment. If you have no idea what that is, it’s basically¬†choosing to engage in conduct which creates a substantial danger/physical injury to another, as the Enquirer puts it.

A month before the 2012 draft, he was arrested on a DUI charge and a little more than two years later, he was arrested again, in Madison County, Kentucky, for endangerment. He’s reportedly awaiting arraignment in Richmond, Kentucky.

Charles is fresh off a season in which he played 13 games while recording one catch for eight yards.

More from ESPN:

Charles’ arrest was the result of what police believe was a road rage incident involving a handgun. The incident report didn’t indicate if any shots were fired.

According to a copy of the incident report obtained Tuesday morning by ESPN.com, Charles was stopped by Richmond police on Interstate 75 after a complaint was called in by another driver. The other driver indicated to police that Charles brandished a firearm in his direction several times while driving down the highway sometime just before 8 p.m. Monday night. At some point, Charles allegedly cut off the other driver. When police arrived and did a search of Charles’ car, a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic handgun was found in a purse.
